Specifically, our Frugal Innovation project stands out for being innovative in two ways:
INTRODUCING AN ENTIRELY NEW CONCEPT TO EUROPE.
This is the first project dedicated to introducing frugal innovation to the European education system. Although conscientious students can read at length about frugal innovation as it emerged in India and throughout the developing world, and there is growing academic interest, only NESTA (UK) and Fraunhofer (Germany) have really framed the issue as relevant to Europe and their work is still in the academic, investigation stage. This project represents the first time that the concept will be introduced, adapted and mainstreamed into our entrepreneurship education processes.
